Very good indeed. What are YOUR favourite pieces of videogame advertising, GRcaders?

The original Zelda OoT advert. Legendary for all the wrong reasons.

Fabian Delph is a banana split.

I'm the only person who thought the Ocarina of Time sexism campaign was actually amusing. 8-)

EDIT: :shock: Great minds!

This'll get the hair on the back of your neck tingling, inspirational stuff, probably the best thing Sony ever did.

Sorry, I saw a link to a website and thought it was a big article about ads, I just wanted to post and watch videos not read about them. My mistake :lol:

EDIT: Holy strawberry float, that website in the first post is awful, it doesn't load properly and is full of ads, what the hell. Just put the link i've done in first post. :|

The Perfect Dark ad


I thought this was the epitome of everything cool at the time, but I was 13 so.... Also Rare had a fake Datadyne website going on, which was the second coolest thing ever. There even was CCTV footage if I recall correctly.

Any of the early playstation adverts were just cool.

The saturn and dreamcast ones were dire.

I think this is more worthy of a facepalm, you should be ashamed.

How come I do this topic last week and it bombs, and HoC does it and gets loads of replies? This makes me sad. :(

They stopped making good videogame ad's when I was about 14. I think the last good advert was the 'Sega Ages' ones the barbers chair.

Well, it is from where I'm sitting. Link works fine. Must be your browser.

Heaty - I didn't know you'd done a topic, I apologise. Bump it up here, and I'll ask one of the mods to lock this one.
